Mid-Year Meeting Update

PBUS For Women Only Luncheon
This annual luncheon will be held again at the upcoming 2015 mid-year meeting at the Cheyenne Mountain Resort on Tuesday, July 14, 2015. The PBUS For Women Only committee is seeking contributions of auction items to be bid on at the closing mid-year breakfast, which greatly helps to offset expenses related to the luncheon. If you have items you can donate please contact Davie Westmoreland (davie@texasquickbail.com). The Chair and Co-Chair of the committee would also like your feedback on program speakers or topics — please contact Chair Linda Braswell (braswellss@aol.com) or Co-Chair Patty Hodges (amississippibonding@yahoo.com) with your suggestions. PBUS looks forward to seeing you all in Colorado Springs, Colorado, for the 2015 Mid-Year meeting!

Guaranteed Room Rate Deadline
The guaranteed room rates at the Cheyenne Mountain Resort end June 18, 2015! After this date, room prices will be at the prevailing resort rate if rooms are still available. I encourage you to make your reservations as soon as possible as some nights are already sold out! Colorado Springs has a variety of family-oriented activities to enjoy. Our conference schedule will end by 3:00 p.m. on Tuesday to allow you to take advantage of all that Colorado Springs has to offer. Reserve your room online here or call 800-588-0250.

See you in Colorado Springs!
